On the Road with Finley and Bohlman: Portland

— filed under:
When: Jun 07, 2017 from 06:00 pm to 07:30 pm

Join us for the last presentation of On the Road with Finley and Bohlman in Portland, OR, presented by the Oregon Historical Society.

Where: First Congregational Church (1126 SW Park Avenue, Portland OR)

Join us for the last presentation: Hunting Birds with a Camera: How William Finley and Herman Bohlman Used Photography to Save Oregon’s Birds, of On the Road with Finley and Bohlman in Portland, OR. 

The Oregon Historical Society is proud to present a retrospective on the work of early twentieth century nature photographers William L. Finley, Irene Finley, and Herman T. Bohlman. Scaling trees, fording rivers, and braving Oregon’s most rugged landscapes, they went to almost any lengths to capture Oregon’s birds on film. Their photographs and tireless dedication to education captivated the public and helped lead to the creation of the state’s first wildlife refuges, laying the foundation for Oregon’s legacy as a leader in conservation. Join us for a night of adventure and laughter as we explore the rarely seen, behind-the-scenes photographs and recapture the spirit of Finley’s long beloved public programs.
